I've been watching Youtube videos by Geohot , Failoverflow and a few other young hacker guys lately, and all of them had one thing in common: they have so perfect conversation skills like experienced actors.
Geohot and others are somewhat goodlooking as well... something fishy here

Now, it is common knowledge that a genius hacker is almost always a nerd/autistic/sociopath that would NEVER expose himself like that. Too shy/ugly to expose himself and talk to the public.

I feel the real hackers are someone else while those on mainstream are just actors, ... but i wonder who paid them to act and why

No, I don't think so.
If you tip just about anyone, they'd turn into a completely different person.
And especially for Geohot, he's been in the news way back when he was Jailbreaking the first iPhones and iPod Touchs, so he already got experience and then some.

@Super.Nova "If you tip " .... you mean somebody have been teaching them to speak in public before they go on Youtube/TV?
Well but then i am right :) There is somebody else behind them.

Also the fact they're goodlooking is fishy

Definitely. People are surprised when I tell them i'm in my mid 20's. They think i'm a teenager. They at first deny and don't believe me.

Apparently the OP thinks the hackers are hot. He's probably just finding feelings he's never felt before.

You don't know the first thing about real hackers, kid. They are people. The real world isn't Big Bang Theory or NCIS or whatever other idiotic things you base your idea of what a skilled programmer is supposed to be.

Almost always. Which is why there are relatively few posting youtube videos.

what kind of drugs are you on?
If you want to say such things, make sure to back them up with statistical data.
